It's a slow burner. It creeps up on you, like a good thriller. Jack does all the hard yards, investigating as only he knows how, then bam! He switches from sleuth to judge, jury and executioner!

Being a 48 year old male, I'm probably not the demographic for this book. But I loved it. I was grossed out by some of Helen's hygiene choices. I had to ask my wife and both my 20 and 22 year old daughters about some of Helen's actions to make sure it wasn't normal. I think a lot of Helen's actions were as a result of PTSD, mixed with female empowerment.

Good background

Not much action but still a worthy read. Getting some insight into Reacher's character and why he does what he does is pretty helpful. Looking forward to the next instalment.

Not his best but still pretty good

I love the Jack Reacher books I've read so far. This was the first I'd listened to. It was a good solid story but maybe not quite enough action. I was disappointed at all, just not as good as previous Reacher books.

Viva la revolution!

Like him or not (I love him) he makes a very good case for change. I'm in, I just wish I knew where to start. I think I'm going to write a letter to my bank asking them to write off my debt. They'll so no but can't hurt to ask.

This is a good book. Make up your own mind about whether or not it's the crazy ravings of a lunatic or another worthwhile perspective.

I've been on a journey (I really don't like that word anymore) to find answers to questions that have been answered time and time again by health professionals, armed with prescription pads. For me, 2015 has been the year of Mindfulness. This book has a lot of practical exercises, so be ready to hit pause. If you're struggling at work and want to find peace within the office, this is a great book to start with. As a team leader, I've found ways to incorporate what I've learned into my role. But it's not just for work. It can be adopted into everyday life. Nick Sullivan sounds like a voice over guy from back in the days of black and white TV. Try new and improved Fab! But he is very easy to understand and easy to listen to. I've listened to this twice and both times cot something new.

I came across this book by accident. Someone had posted an excerpt from the chapter 'The World' on Facebook and it really hooked me. Matt's voice is easy to understand and he reads it with so much passion, he wrote so why wouldn't he. It's a great book for people with metal illness, so many, 'OMG, it's like he's reading my mind' moments. It's also good to let anyone who supports a person with mental illness, listen to it. They can learn a lot for this. It's a book I'll listen to over and over again.
